Suggested First Tasks
We reached out to Carpentries and asked them what they suggest freshly minted rigor champions interested in becoming involved with their community do to get a sense of the culture and vision. These are listed below, and we strongly recommend giving them a shot!
Sign up for Instructor Training!
The Carpentries workshops are taught by volunteer instructors, but in order to ensure that these are of a high quality, instructors must first undergo training. If you’re ready to take the next step, you can learn how to be an effective teacher and even pick up a trick or two by signing up here!
Review the Help Wanted Listings!
A community of this size always has something or other that needs doing — The Carpentries have made chipping in as easy as possible by listing all actionable opportunities to help out and contribute here. Take a look and see whether there’s anything you could help with!
Contribute to the Lessons!
The Carpentries lessons are community-built, so a great way to get involved is by going through these lessons and suggesting potential improvements on their GitHub.
